"The use of scenting hounds to hunt red and roe deer, fox, hare, jackal, and bush-pig is described in this book by Colin Lewis, a former Hunting Correspondent of The Irish Field. The author also outlines the history of venery in Ireland and reviews some of the art, literature and poetry associated, especially in Ireland, with hunting. The book contains over seventy illustrations by Eddie Buckmaster, the author, John Keulder and other gifted photographs, as well as sketches by Lucilla Jones. They include action shots taken in the field in winter, when hunting was at its peak. The photographs, sketches and text record ways of rural and social life that are almost unknown to, and seldom appreciated or understood by, the vast majority of urban dwellers. This fascinating and unusual book should interest all who follow hounds, as well as people interested in nature, environmental ecology, rural life, folklore, and ceremonial traditions that extend far back into distant history."
